Tightening up the Virtual Pad-Work (diary entry)

Knee strike to virtual pads20.02.21

Saturday morning’s lesson saw my client focus entirely on combinations 6 and 7. This is the second hour of his new 10 hour course on stand-up striking combinations. We are continuing with the previous combinations covered in our last course but transferring them onto focus mitts. The lesson was split into a 10 minute warm-up round, 6 x 5 minute rounds of shadowing and then reacting to the focus mitts followed by static stretching.

The warm-up round brought in some more footwork exercises, borrowing a lot from Russian/Cuban boxing methods. We through rock-backs, lineal footwork and different pivots.
